Tank et al. 2017 Ecological Monographs



This dataset contains data from 17 stream 15N-NH4 tracer addition experiments conducted globally, with data partitioned by autotrophic uptake compartments (i.e., epilithic biofilm, filamentous algae, bryophytes/macrophytes) and heterotrophic uptake compartments (i.e., leaves, small wood, and fine particles) that comprise the base of stream food webs. The dataset includes compartmental data on N biomass and uptake as well as other physiochemical variable that describe conditions in each stream.
